Excerpt: Judit Polgar (born 23 July 1976) is a Hungarian chess grandmaster. She is by far the strongest female chess player in history. In 1991, Polgar achieved the title of Grandmaster at the age of 15 years and 4 months, the youngest person ever to do so at that time. Polgar was ranked number 36 in the world on the July 2012 FIDE rating list with an Elo rating of 2709, the only woman on FIDEs Top 100 Players list, and has been ranked as high as eighth (in 2005).

Geniuses are made, not born, was Laszlos thesis. He and his wife Klara educated their three daughters at home, with chess as the specialist subject. Laszlo also taught his three daughters the international language Esperanto. They received resistance from Hungarian authorities as home-schooling was not a socialist approach. They also received criticism at the time from some western commentators for depriving the sisters of a normal childhood.
